Researchers Unveil New Blood Flow Simulation System

Researchers at George Mason University’s Center for Computational Fluid Dynamics recently unveiled a first of its kind patient-specific blood flow simulation system that was assembled by Phillips Medical Systems using software components developed at Mason. The cutting-edge technology has the potential to improve diagnostics and treatments for millions of Americans who are affected by brain aneurysms — saclike bulges in the blood vessels — each year. A multi-disciplinary team comprised of Mason’s computational scientists, Inova Fairfax Hospital’s neuroradiologists, and Phillips Medical System’s engineers, produced the application to provide neurologists with hemodynamic (blood flow) information that is believed to be of fundamental importance for understanding the evolution and rupture process of brain aneurysms.
